Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds, using joint-locks and chokeholds also found in numerous other arts with or without ground fighting emphasis.

In most real life situations the altercation ends up in some kind of grappling. This is where Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu takes over! Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers (and counter-maneuvers) are available to manipulate the opponent into a suitable position for the application of a submission technique. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is based off of positioning and leverage. Using these applications, it is possible for the weaker more timid person to overcome the larger stronger and more aggressive attacker. At Faction Martial Arts we train individuals from all walks of life, from the business man to the timid child, and from the hobbyist to the highest level of competitors.
